Join Bill and Musha (his dog) on a series of small Mushroom Hunts at different  locations within an hours drive from Dublin. The exact location will be announced to participants closer to the date. This will be at a beautiful and picturesque private estate above Blessington Lakes. It has previously produced lots of good edible mushrooms. 

We will be meeting at 12pm for a brief introduction to Mushroom Hunting from Bill O'Dea. We will then forage for mushrooms for about 2 hours. This will be followed by identification of our find, and cooking of edible mushrooms. Our mission for the day is to identify what we are looking for, find some, and taste some. 

Agenda

Meet at House at 12pm. People will need to travel by their own means. Exact directions will be given closer to the date. 

Return at 2pm for further identification and cooking of edibles and a bowl of Bill's Magic(tasting that is, not psychoactive) Mushroom soup. We will also cook some local venison and other treats.

Finish about 3.30PM.

We would expect to find over 50 different types of mushrooms on the day. The terrain is suitable for all levels of fitness.  Participants should wear walking shoes and outdoor clothing. Also, please bring a basket or cloth bag for collecting mushrooms.
